"How is a partial birth abortion (D & X) performed?The D & X abortion is used in late second and third trimesters (24-36 weeks). As with the D & E, the cervix must be dilated using laminaria.Forceps are then introduced into the uterus to grasp the baby's legs. The baby is delivered breech while the head remains inside the birth canal. Using blunt-tipped surgical scissors, the base of the skull is pierced and a suction catheter is inserted to extract the brain. This causes the skull to collapse and the dead baby is then fully delivered.Sometimes, while the child is partially delivered and still alive, the organs are removed and sold for fetal tissue experimentation (an illegal practice)."Nothing about birth there. And the fetus isn't "delivered". It's pulled out.What in your definition from "prolifeaction.org" contradicts what I said? "Partial birth" isn't a medical term. The fetus is not being "born". It's being aborted. As in "cut short" - the MD aborted the pregnancy.
